I really prefer beer flavored beer.
I can picture a bitter or pilsner lover saying the same about your rye IPA. :)

Possibly, but I think that's more of a question of style preference than beer flavoring....of course, I would think that!

Janis, if you make it, I'll try it!  BTW, I pretty much feel the same way about smoked beers that I do about spruce beers!  In spite of my BVIP recipe, I really prefer beer flavored beer.

I agree. I want the barbeque I'm eating with the beer delivering the smoky flavor, not the beer itself.

+1  While I like to try a smoked beer once in a while, I'm not a huge fan.  I once ordered a Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier MÃrzen before my meal at the local brewpub.  Every part of my meal tasted like it was filtered through a campfire - even the salad!
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
